Become a Volunteer at Shalom Village!

Super volunteers!

As a not-for-profit organization, Shalom Village relies on a dedicated team of volunteers to help us “make possibilities possible” for our residents. Our goal is to encourage volunteer development in a way that helps us achieve Shalom Village’s mission, while also providing a rewarding experience for volunteers. Our volunteer team is a diverse, all-ages group that includes residents, family members, students, retired people and other motivated community members.
